Last Friday I had the privilege of interacting with an AMAZING group of artists at the Kenya Society for the Blind.
I met Santiago, a volunteer from Argentina who came to Kenya and found himself at home with disability. He begun the Drums in the Dark project after sending months in Kangudo working with blind and visually impaired children.
Drums in the Dark aims to offer alternative employment opportunities for disabled persons, it seeks to showcase the skill and high levels of creativity and professionalism amongst the artists.
I was lucky to sit in during a practice session, and it was mind blowing!
Santiago and the 6 percussionists, Winnie, Joseph, Mike, and the rest are working hard to showcase their talent at a charity event at the Italian Cultural Centre, and I for one, plan on attending! The monies raised will enable the group purchase drum sets that they so desperately need.
It will be a show with a cause for show.
See you there!
